Spiral Apple Dumplings
- For sauce, in a large saucepan, combine 2 cups sugar, the water, margarine, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, and nutmeg. Bring to boiling and boil for 5 minutes; set aside (should have about 2 cups sauce).
- For dough, in a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until pea-size. Make well in center. Add milk all at once. Stir just until moistened. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface 10 to 12 strokes or until nearly smooth. Roll out to 12x10-inch rectangle.
- For filling, combine 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; set aside. Sprinkle apples evenly over dough. Sprinkle with sugar mixture. Roll dough into spiral, starting from a long side. Pinch seam to seal. Cut into twelve 1-inch-thick pieces. Place in 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Pour sauce over dumplings. Bake in a 350 degree F oven about 50 minutes or until golden. Makes 12 servings.

I like to sub about 1/4 to 1/3 of the flour to be whole wheat, use Gala apples, and sometimes reduce the spices and add ginger for more of a ginger glaze. Adding walnuts adds a nice flavor, too. The gingery glaze also works well when using pears.
